Water & Sewer - Drought Update
Posted Date: 2/6/2014
Following a record-setting dry year in 2013, Governor Jerry Brown issued a drought declaration for the State of California, urging all Californians to reduce water usage by 20%. In response to the current situation, the City of Santa Clara’s surface water providers, Santa Clara Valley Water District (SCVWD) and San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC), have set water use reduction targets of 10%. Santa Clara, with groundwater from the City’s 27 wells and through careful planning with SCVWD and SFPUC, currently has sufficient water supplies to meet the City’s demand. Although the City of Santa Clara is not imposing water use reductions at this time, the City does ask that water be used wisely and efficiently during this time of drought.
